  1. Binged "Inside Job" on Netflix. It was disappointingly meh. A disapointmeh.

  2. @scribus Yeah. Even with an electric razor it's not very feasible to shave every day because of skin irritation. Honestly I rather prefer not to have a beard at all and would want a permanent hair follicle removal but the risk of scarring my skin on the face is too high.

  3. My D&D group starts planning the next campaign. Next campaign will be a dimension-hopping adventure combined with a TV-style Power-Ranger-eque plot structure whereas a multiversal evil is plotting something evil and our group works for an unquestionable force for good. We rotate the DM duty and I think that on my turn at the levels I will make an adventure in a dimension that is inhabited by unicorns and horses that is threatened by a centaur wizard.

  4. I'm doing an anti-"No Shave November". Usually I shave myself every two weeks but this month I try to shave daily or every other day. My verdict so far: Daily shaving is not worth it as my beard grows so fast that I can feel the stubbles after an hour after the shave. Waxing my face is not an option.

  5. Hmmm... Ground meat on a bun with a sprinkle of onion, also known as "Mettbrötchen". I hadn't it in a long time, half a year maybe.

  8. "Those lazy, lazy leaves"! I was taking the scenic route from shopping through the park and there I slid in a corner and fell. I lost all tyre grip because a brown and slimy moist pile of leaves in the curve acted like it's the best replacement for grease in that moment. Luckily there was not much damage. My pants got dirty, a scratch on my knee, and the side of my pedal was heavily scratched.

  11. I'm giving Elon Musk a few weeks to crash Tesla, Starlink and Space X to the ground. The Boring Company is kinda the first victim to his insanity (hyperloop and the ridiculous tunnel in Vegas). Starlink is not very well either after his generous offer and then hostage situation. It takes one mad man to create an empire and the same mad man to destroy it even quicker.

  15. @adiwan I used some leftover PVC tarp, 3d printed a small decorative clamping piece that clamps the tarp flap to the mud guard, a M3 screw, two washers, a M3 locknut. I found some mud flaps similar in size online but mine was basically 1€ in costs, including the misprints.

  16. Made myself a mudflap for my bicycle. I could buy one but all the ones for purchase are way too small for what I think I need. Mine reaches further down and is wider in the hopes it will catch more dirt and preventing all that dirt flinging on my shoes and pants.

  17. Spammers assume we have enough dough to own land and therefore trees that have to be maintained. In this economy? Sheesh.

  18. After so much time on the Internet I'm still triggered by the simple mistakes in sentences when words like its and it's, you're and your, their and there... are written with the incorrect meaning. its and it's is the most reasonable mistake to make but my 5th grade me, learning English for the first time properly, could get it straight right away. (I had English in 3rd and 4th grade but the teacher was an imbecile)

  19. Tech sites are quite lacking serious content when they publish articles about the Raspberry Pi doing quirky things. In my head this always read as "PC does PC things".

  21. I enjoyed reading Cullen Bunn's "The Sixth Gun" but the recent "The Last Book You'll Ever Read" started interestingly but became kiwi after issue 4 until the end.

  22. I think Rings of Power was good. It's not a people pleaser by any means but I enjoyed many of the actors, the production design, the visual effects, and the music. The story was fine. The standout characters were Elrond and Durin. Best bros.

  23. Daily I ponder about why soap dishes on the market are soo damn big and deep, as if they expected that the soap will be dripping off a bucket of water. I 3D-printed a very shallow one and it's fine for me. I wet my hands, use the piece of soap, the piece of soap is wet but not dripping, almost nothing drips off and collects in the dish.

  27. I really like the open source wireless router/access point firmware DD-WRT. I really like it because it can make a $10 cheap router usable. Most built-in firmwares are so cut down or limited that make me furious. My go-to router for the cheapest possible deploy is a D-Link DIR 615. It is not the best and it is not the worst but most wireless devices are compatible with it (B/G/N) and costs usually about $5 used and new.

  28. I'm laughing really hard right now. Google is shutting down Stadia. Before the pandemic I had an intense discussion with a colleague about cloud gaming and the colleague was a huge fan of Stadia, and I was mostly against it. Who has won now?
